BLYTHffTILLE tARK.) COURIER NEWS TV Set Can Be Fitted In Decorative Scheme By VIVIAN BROWN A* Newifemtvret Writer A television set can be an eye- •ote if it is just "put" in the room. On the other hand if it is placed properly it may be made a decorative center of interest; according to June Cabot director of the Home Art* Council (Libbey-Owens-Ford). Says she: "A television set can be changed irom a bulky problem piece by using the same type of decorative pleces-^mirrors, statuary, candela- ora—ttoat one uses for a contemporary fireplace." This .interior decorator suggests thit the TV set, whether table model or console be placed against one ^living-room wall, with chair and •ofa arrangement designed for clear-angle viewing and easy conversation. It is impractical, she says, to recess the set into the wall, so the most effective arangement Is a wall that is extended in line with it. She also suggests: 1. Console sets may be flanked with book cases, modular-unit cabinets or buffet-type chests, and the entire arrangement tied together with a mirror. *. Statuary, vases, floral ar-1 rangements add interest. But fram- ed pictures should not. hang directly over the TV screen where they would compete for picture interest. Certain wallpaper around a television set may be hard on the eyes. 3. A table model TV set may be enclosed in a modular cabinet which is treated in console fashion, placed on ton, of the central unit of a modular grouping, using mirrors on the sides or placed in the center of a deep mantel shelf. A television set can be made to contribute handsomely to the decor of a room. It can be painted a matching or contrasting color to harmonize with your color scheme, it could be slipcovered with fabric or leather by a smart seamstress. Although television sets usually are used in the living room, a more ideal arrangement may be evolved if space is available in other rooms such as den, sunroom or enclosed terrace. This keeps the set out of the company area, so that guests; may have their choice of viewing or j not viewing. It can be boresome to j be corraled into watching some ridiculous program that the host elects for his guests. With the contraption out of the way guests won't be afraid to come to your house.
